Voter Information as a Public Record
Once filed, with few exceptions, all voter registration information is public record including your name, address, date of birth, party affiliation, phone number and email address. Your social security number, your driver’s license number or state identification card number, and the source of your voter registration application CANNOT be released or disclosed to the public under any circumstances, and can only be used for voter registration purposes. Your signature can be viewed, but not copied. Section 97.0585, Fla. Stat.
Your voter registration information may not be publicly disclosed or made available, provided:
- You are or become a participant in the Attorney General’s Address Confidentiality Program for victims of domestic violence and stalking. See section 97.0585(3) and sections 741.401-741.465, Florida Statutes. Contact the Attorney General’s Office’s Bureau of Advocacy and Grants Management at 850.414.3300 for instructions on how to become a participant.
- You submit a written request to each agency that may have your information such as your address, photo, and date of birth. However, you must fall within one of the statutorily designated classes of high-risk professionals. Please refer to the Public Records Exemption Request form and follow instructions to submit the completed form to the Florida Department of State.
Public information can find its way onto the Internet or websites by individuals or entities that obtain public records from the State. Once information is in the public domain, you will need to contact the owner or administrator of third-party sites in order to get the information removed.
